It felt like maximum capacity might have been reached. Even the WSOP might not have inspired better numbers. It felt like the WSOP just might not be the right vehicle for that kind of tournament, especially since the WSOP has always blazed the trails, not walked them afterward.
Enter Guy Laliberte, founder of Cirque de Soleil, poker player, humanitarian. He knew poker's heaviest hitters would generally not risk this much in a single tournament unless there were more incentive than just money.
It needed to be a golden opportunity, so Laliberte infused a charity component He became the tournament's first entrant. Laliberte started flying to meet with his business contacts, heavy hitters in the business world and enthusiasts at the table.
He told them about One Drop and its mission to make sure no child would go thirsty. He waxed romantic about the incredible experience a tournament like this would provide, and one by one, the businessmen started making their commitments.
From the sharks' perspective, with each businessman dollar that entered the pot, the tournament started looking like a potential feeding frenzy.
Outside of Las Vegas, the event and the cause are gaining national exposure. Days 1 and 2 will be streamed live online at WSOP.
The final table on Day 3 will be broadcast live on Tuesday, starting at 4 p. It's safe to say the world's education on this issue is about to hit a steep incline.
Thus the event is already a massive success. He's so tapped into the business world, though, that he was able to go out and recruit, rally the players.
It's a great way to raise awareness and a whole lot of money. The rake is going to charity. I think his passion for charity is what motivates him.
It had to be him, a guy who loved poker, knew the players and knew the businessman. Guy was definitely the absolute best person to do this.
Starting at p. The tournament will begin with six tables and will continue for three days. Amazingly, for hosting this monster, the WSOP isn't taking one red cent off the top despite providing space, tables, chips, dealers, drinks and the rest that comes with a class poker event, because for all of the personal fortune the players stand to gain, this event isn't about them.
Really, it's not even about the WSOP, even though there's a platinum bracelet for the winner. The other part of our mission is education, awareness, which is equally important.
We're living in an area of privilege where people feel like water as a resource is infinite, which isn't the case.
There are people who don't have that access to water, whose neighbors are dying every day. Really, the One Drop campaign is calling for unity and international collaboration on a solution to water access issues in the world.
Laliberte knows his work has only just begun. The campaign has tried to reach the community and the individual, asking for them to commit a percentage of their winnings financially because we'd be able in that community to raise a lot of money.
The more money we raise, the more lives we save. It's important because this informs people about the importance of access to water, how important the resource is, how it isn't infinite.
The Big One shows how philanthropy can spring up in the most unlikely of places. We're proud poker's most historic moments happen at the WSOP.
Now, with money and awareness raised, after a year of planning, recruiting and promoting, the time to shuffle up and deal is at hand.
As much as the world's best tournament players are accustomed to reducing poker chips in their mind to game pieces, even they're expressing excitement you seldom hear.
That it's benefiting such a great charity is great also. I feel like it's an honor just to be a part of a select group.
A percentage will go there, sure, but absolutely not. I play also for myself. There's no one out there who paid a million to not win it.
It's a big boxing match type of weekend in Vegas, the pros in the red corner, businessmen in the blue corner. I think the pros have an edge because of their profession, but the luck factor could go either way and the power and the money could balance these things.
On Saturday night with 46 seats full and two satellites left to play, the world watched with anticipation to see who would be the final members of the brotherhood that would form this field.
Typical of his late-entry theatrics, Phil Hellmuth finally joined the party, taking the seat paid for early on by MGM. It was dramatics proceeding dramatics.
Nothing is small about this tournament. Hansen and Hellmuth join the stellar roster that will not only be competing for that first prize, but also be immortalized as the cast of this monumental spectacle.
